On Being Boring

I moved from London to Brussels with my husband nearly 10 years ago.

It is full of hidden treasures that you probably never get to see as a tourist: wonderful shops, amazing food, great museums and galleries, beautiful architecture, a forest (yes, a whole forest), and so much more... And if that doesn't convince you, well, get on a train and you could be in Paris, Amsterdam, Cologne or, yes, London in no more than a couple of hours... Which other city can you say that about?

Je ne suis pas forte en photo bébé… Heureusement, même sur une mauvaise photo, elle est belle comme tout.(je n’arrivais pas à choisir entre la couleur – mon choix habituel – et le noir et blanc – un peu plus classique peut-être? Alors je met les deux et vous pouvez choisir vous-même celle que vous […]

Les fleurs de ma belle-soeur.

Shot early in the morning while the dew still hung on… or in the evening after my sister-in-law had sprayed the plants with insecticide to get rid of the ants… one or the other (one is clearly more romantic than the other). I honestly can’t remember. Either way, these were shot with a 100mm lens […]
